Black Friday shopping starts on Nov. 1, thanks to Amazon launching its Black Friday Deals Store. The company announced that the deals will keep going until Dec. 22.
The Black Friday Deals Store will include daily deals, sales, and upcoming deals. The company will also celebrate Black Friday by including specific deals and sales every day that week. Cyber Monday will also include a whole week of deals. Basically, if you want to score savings on your holiday shopping, check out Amazon starting now until Dec. 22.
Amazon Prime members will get exclusive Alexa deals via their Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap, Amazon Fire TV, and Fire tablet. Prime members will also receive 20 percent off any order of preorder or newly released games.
Amazon will have the following deal for everyone on Nov. 20:
- Kindle Paperwhite ($99, originally $120)
And will have these specific deals (Prime and non-Prime members) on Nov. 24:
- Amazon Echo ($140, originally $180)
- Echo Dot ($40, originally $50)
- Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote ($30, originally $40)
- Fire HD 8 ($60, originally $90)

If you download the Amazon shopping app, you can expect to see three new features. The first is "Package X-Ray," which will ruin any Christmas surprise. Use the app to scan the barcode on an Amazon package and you'll find out what's in the box. The other features include using your camera to search for anything you like on Amazon and "flinging" items into your wish list or comparing two different ones. And if you need any help figuring out what to get your family and friends, Amazon has a number of curated gift guides ready for you to peruse.
Either these holiday deals are great news for everyone to save and budget earlier for their gift shopping, or Amazon just made Black Friday lose all of its meaning.
